Yes, physically owning precious metals is a good policy. But owning a 'position' in them is just playing the speculations market. Which isn't as good a thing. That only gets you some digital 1's and 0's. I can't even wipe my gorgeous a** with digital 1's and 0's.


Then open up a salvage company and start buying scrap copper, or scrap Jewelry//IE: Silver

That's the point of supplies. They aren't a trophy. They're to get you through until you can get away from whatever hell you suddenly find yourself in. To somewhere you can survive. And that's the point of having a skill that can serve you in a more primitive society, and the ability to ply it.

Trust me canned food doesn't last that long.


You need them to at least survive in the short term while you get your hands dirty in the good ol soil to grow some vegies and some long term sustainable food source.

Surely we can't live off canned food for long. I am just lucky I live in a developing country, back in my village we still live off the land. So if anything, I am heading back home to plant some seeds.

Peace

In your case, it also good to form a group of few trusted folks in your area, especially family.

And see it through, there maybe a solution after the inevitable, but in the interim stock up enough to last a couple of months, thats enough time grow some foodstuff.

This is the best I can offer, am not a millionair yet, but if i where, I wouldn't have second thoughts of flying any ATS friend over to my country and live off the land. All in the name helping a friend.

Peace

Beautiful ideology. I truly admire that.
In the realistic scope of things, I do have relationships to depend on in case of dire need. And they can depend on me as well.
And, like I said, I have developed skills and tools to assure my usefulness in a prolonged survival scenario. My equipment to do so, on a small scale, is portable. That will allow me to work until I can set up a larger operation. And in the event that a true collapse or doomsday scenario occurs, my raw materials will be plentiful.

My number 1 survival tip if the zombie apocalypse ever happens.
Blades don't require reloading.

Which is the absolute least likely of scenarios, but good advice nonetheless.

Just curious what you would do in my situation if the # were to hit the fan to the extent mr McBride predicts, in the coming days weeks or months.

I live surrounded by thousands of houses in one of London's many densely populated residential boroughs, for miles around its just houses... My flat is in the top floor of a five storey block. It overlooks a busy junction with heavy traffic and I have a lot of visability to the surrounding area... But all it is I can really see from here to the horizon is just houses and trees a few churches, an old school and a few more tower blocks in the distance

There will be many people in that urban sprawl who die quickly simply through their own stupidity. They will leave behind resources. The dead have no need of food.
Also, the moralistic self we all hold so dearly only exists because our society affords it the luxury to. It has no where near so great a value is a long-term survival scenario. I'm simply saying 'do what you absolutely must'. No evil, but survive.

Stake out and kill the killers. It secures the area and offers you food. It's a waiting game.

I'll add this note. Hunger will open up a whole new world of food sources, eventually. I have been there. And I sleep soundly.
(No, not talking about cannibalism)

That's also a tactic you could employ. Though that involves trying to stay in a rapidly deteriorating urban environment. I really wouldn't suggest it.
